The first part of the week was glorious, we sat out, wandered up the valley with the dog

Caught up with some friends....And then it got a tad cooler! Last night the Mistral started to blow & I got very little sleep - it even lashed it down with rain at 2am.

I did manage to stay up to date with my journal challenges & im here to share....
Journal 52: monochrome
A prepped page in shades of sage/ yellowish green. I added some scraps from a colouring book page and a drinks mat (which adds a little pinky lilac)

Art prompts galore time/vintage

An advert for old motorcycles, an old fashioned advert for a children's book that I've added to a black label that has a little doodling on it done with a white pen.

Colour me positive: Dream big
Another prepped page with stamping, ticket washi tape, a temple dancer from a travel magazine and a lady in a strange hat that I seem to think was from a packet of savoury biscuits! I love to wear hats & the bigger the better!

DLP where we are still out on a limb. This week we had to use a PAC that someone else had drawn on. As I had no such thing with me I used a piece of happy mail gelli print cut to ATC size, added washi, an owl from stash, doodles & stencilling, coloured the 2 wacky owls in the top corner & calling it done. This improvising lark is not easy when you don't have your full craft room available lol!

Every inchie Monday : bulldozer

Well of course...that was not going to be easy to fit on an inch now was it, so let's take a step sideways & see what a rummage in the scraps could turn up....a piece that I've cut from the horoscope page in the Sunday Times!  A bull dozing!!!

Hopefully this one will have given you a giggle. See you all again soon with more tales from the mountains.....


  1. Love that bull dozing! The background on the page with the pear on it is delicious, very pleasing to look at. Lovely set of projects again Sally. x

  7. Oh I love your take on bull dozing - so clever. Nice pages too.

  8. Great minds Sally with the dozing bull!! But I am still green - fantastic snow and views and to get to do art as well - just idyllic and such good work too. As you say Rock on!
